Canadian Criminology Today offers a clear, contemporary, and comprehensive introduction to criminology that encourages students to think critically about the causes of crime and the outcomes of crime-prevention strategies. Throughout the text, Schmalleger and Volk use plentiful examples and current case studies to present the consequences of criminological theory for social policy and the practical issues associated with crime control. Special attention is paid to both Canadian issues and emerging forms of criminality worldwide to ensure students are well prepared for future careers in the Canadian criminal justice system.

About the Author:

Frank Schmalleger, Ph.D., is professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, where he was recognized as Distinguished Professor. Dr. Schmalleger holds degrees from the University of Notre Dame and Ohio State University, having earned both a master's (1970) and a doctorate in sociology (1974) from Ohio State University with a special emphasis in criminology. From 1976 to 1994, he taught criminal justice courses at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. For the last 16 of those years, he chaired the university's Department of Sociology, Social Work, and Criminal Justice. Frank Schmalleger is the author of numerous articles and many books and he is also the founding editor of the journalCriminal Justice Studies(formerlyThe Justice Professional). Schmalleger's philosophy of both teaching and writing can be summed up in these words: “In order to communicate knowledge we must first catch, then hold, a person's interest—be it student, colleague, or policymaker. Our writing, our speaking, and our teaching must be relevant to the problems facing people today, and they must—in some way—help solve those problems.”

 

Rebecca Volkcurrently oversees the Centre for Organizational Learning at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario after many years as a coordinator and professor in the Police Foundations Program at the College. She holds a bachelor's degree in political science from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario and an applied master's degree in criminology from the University of Ottawa. She is also co-author ofPolice Ethics: A Matter of Character. Volk's professional experience has included involvement with a variety of offender aftercare and advocacy agencies, federal and provincial correctional institutions and residential centres, legal aid services, and various police agencies. She serves on the boards of several organizations devoted to promoting social justice for the most vulnerable among us.
